Cycling the Ayrshire Alps

cyclist picThe latest issue of the Cyclist Magazine features an 8-page article on the joys of road cycling around the coast at Girvan and Turnberry, inland to Barr and into the Galloway Forest Park at Nic O Balloch. It’s a great piece, full of humour, interesting facts and super photos. You can read the full article in pdf format here

Mentioned in the article is the Ayrshire Alps, a group which aims to map and signpost all the routes in the hill roads of South Ayrshire and have created Scotland’s first Road Cycling Park. Their excellent and informative website, www.ayrshirealps.org is well worth a look. It has a piste map showing Black (difficult) routes through to Red (challenging), Blue (moderate) and Green (easy) along with villages to stop on route.
